The Search at Edge of the Solar System
Is there a hard edge to the solar system? This question led to a big, breakthrough discovery that changed the way we picture the solar system - and every other solar system in the universe. The Kuiper Belt is a gigantic field of small, icy objects beyond Neptune, â€œplanet scrapsâ€ left over from the formation of the planets. For many, many years, no one believed it might exist. Until astronomers Jane Luu and David Jewitt decided to see what was out there. Jane Luu tells the story of how she helped discover the Kuiper Belt. We have an exciting announcement! Weâ€™ve partnered with Castbox to launch Tumble Premium, a channel on the Castbox app featuring ad-free episodes and all our bonus interview episodes too! Itâ€™s $1.35/month through the app, or $16/year. Youâ€™ll be helping support the show while listening on a great podcast app! Donâ€™t worry, weâ€™ve still got the same great audio extras available on Patreon, too. This week, we have more from our interview with Jane Luu on â€˜Oumuamua, the mysterious, weirdly shaped, potentially alien (yes, THAT kind of alien!) space object. Pledge at patreon.com/tumblepodcast. Want to learn more about the Kuiper Belt? Check out our blog at www.sciencepodcastforkids.com.

The Story Of American Imperialism
American presidents like to describe the United States as a force for freedom and independence in the world. Historian Daniel Immerwahr says there are also plenty of times in our history when we've subjugated and ruled foreign lands, sometimes with bloody conquests. Today, roughly 4 million people live in the American territories of Puerto Rico, Guam, American Samoa, and the Northern Mariana Islands. Immerwahr's new book, 'How to Hide an Empire,' looks at the history of and forces behind US territorial expansion. Jazz critic Kevin Whitehead reviews 1960s live recordings featuring singer Jeanne Lee and pianist Ran Blake.
